MSc/PGDip in International Finance and Accounting

General

Programme Description

Well-qualified professionals in the financial sector can expect to spend a significant part of their career in an international setting, and our MSc is designed with this in mind. During your studies, you’ll find yourself in a cosmopolitan environment, where you’ll learn to develop a critical understanding of the principles, theories, concepts, contexts, approaches and challenges central to international finance, accounting and economics in the global economy. As well as developing skills in the use of tools, techniques, and research methods, you’ll become familiar with ethical and professional standards in finance and accounting, in an international setting, and will be supported to acquire ethical awareness and sound judgment in interpreting complex features of institutions in the global economic system (e.g. accounting information reported by international companies).

You’ll develop these abilities in an interactive learning environment, working in the real business, accounting and financial problems that managers encounter in international settings. You can work first as an executive in simulated businesses, and then carry forward this training to help you engage with local business and professional bodies, improving your awareness of contemporary management practices in firms that have global operations. Our Global Growth Week is a high spot of the programme and brings into DBS senior personnel from local companies with global reach such as Michelin, NCR and Heineken, who will freely interact with students.

Professional accreditations are currently being finalised and subject to confirmation, depending on your interests, our programme can be tailored to offer professional accreditations from CFA, CIMA, ACCA at various levels
